I'm a confident, driven, straight talker. Thankfully the brashness is balanced by a bit of Midwestern modesty.
Not one for banal banter. In fact, I can be downright laconic, but I love in-depth conversation. What can I say? I'm a liberal arts guy who is most at home sharing food and wine with friends. But when I'm not, I'm out doing things.
My run down of conundrums:
I'm very independent, but I like to share. I cook but don't use recipes. I'm an introvert, but I like people. I'm analytical, but I'm passionate about being analytical. I'm spontaneous, but I'm a great planner. I write dialog well but not prose. I love the city and the country. I'm lighthearted and responsible, intense and playful. I'm as comfortable hiking off trail as I am traipsing around an art show. Last I checked OKC's personality robot thinks I'm one the most ill-mannered and least old fashioned man on the planet, because I don't judge other lifestyles and have a thing for iconoclasts. OK, well maybe I am! But I believe in good ole' self respect, at least lookin' put together, and common courtesy (You can thank my Grandparents for that!). So all this means I'm rather irreverent.
Oh, and I guess people list these things: INTP though the N is pretty soft. I'm not just a thinker, I'm a doer.
And if this were a Bruce Springsteen song, he'd be looking for spark plugs. A firecracker. Whip smart, natural, self aware, well-read, warm, open and appreciates my sense of irony. A partner perhaps.
